NW Film Forum presents “Fresh French Shorts” — Dec 16th —

30 Nov

Here, my friends, is the most amazing date-night you will get these next few weeks. If there is something that could beat this, let me know. But if you want to actually have something to talk about ‘after’ the movie instead of “did you recognize Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder right away or did it take 5 minutes?”, then you should check this refreshing crash-course in modern French cinema.

Tuesday, Dec 16 at 08:00PM: Fresh French Shorts

Cinema occupies an especially important place in French society, with a tradition of major government support underwriting production, distribution and exhibition both inside and out of the country. While established directors find funding for ambitious new feature films, significant investment also goes into short films by emerging, risk-taking talents that give voice to the diversity of French culture. Each year up to 400 short films are produced that collectively offer a unique insight into French life and the next generation of French filmmakers. Tonight’s program of recent short films, co-selected and presented with the Alliance Française de Portland, includes an eclectic selection of narrative, documentary and animated international prizewinners and a few fresh surprises.
